Gareth Southgate names 23-man squad full of ruthless expulsions, surprises

Before Southgate revealed the players who will carry England's hopes into the tournament, BBC Sport highlighted five key questions he had to resolve.

Players selected for Southgate's squad will link up next week, although Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool players will be given extra time off due to commitments in other competitions.

Their inclusions come at the expense of Jack Wilshere and Adam Lallana, who have suffered injury-blighted campaigns. The fact that Delph can play both as a full-back and in midfield is an added bonus. He was one of six players aged 23 and under alongside John Stones, Dele Alli, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Alexander-Arnold. All being well, they should then progress to the last 16 stage.

Perhaps, James Milner, who has had a decent season at Liverpool might feel hard-done by.

Hart, 31 and with 75 England caps to his name, has one year remaining on his contract at City.

Shelvey has that ability to play quality balls in behind the opposition - something that the likes of Vardy and Rashford would relish.

Hart's omission means that Burnley keeper Nick Pope - who was second pick at his club less than a year ago - will now represent his country at a World Cup.

Scott Arfield signs for Rangers on four-year deal from Burnley
Although the deal was originally set in motion by Rangers director of football Marl Allen, Gerrard gave it his full approval. He is out of contract at Turf Moor this summer.

England's record cap holder, Peter Shilton, thinks Alexander-Arnold's maiden call-up may be a hint to a future role in the side rather than an immediate one in Russian Federation.

Would you give young guns Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ruben Loftus-Cheek a chance?

"Ryan and Joe have played a lot over the last two years so they're not decisions we took lightly", Southgate said. Now, he is preparing to mark Cristiano Ronaldo in next week's Champions League final against Real Madrid and will then head to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Marcio Pocchetino might not have won any trophies with Tottenham yet but he has certainly contributed a host of exciting young English talent for the national squad.

Not everyone is convinced that Lascelles is Three Lions quality, and he can prove his doubters wrong next season.

He made 19 Premier League appearances, conceding 39 goals and kept only four clean sheets.
